The measure of the larger angle is twice the measure of the smaller angle. Find the measure of the angles." Supplementary angles add up to 180° x = one angle 180 - x = other angle {the two angles add up to 180°} 180 - x = 2x {the measure of the larger is twice the measure of the smaller} 180 = 3x {added x to both sides} x = 60 {divided both sides by 3} 180 - x = 120 {substituted 60, in for x, into 180 - x} the two angles are 60° and 120° For more help from me, visit: www.algebrahouse.com
